About the property

2 Bed/2 Bath Cabin In The Woods

Get away and relax at our clean, comfortable Cabin in the woods. Inside is a smoke free environment and pets are considered. The Cabin will accommodate up to six people. The living room offers a queen size sleeper sofa. It also has a 46" flat screen TV with a DVD/VHS player and Dish TV with Sirius radio. The master bedroom has a king size bed, a 39" flat screen TV, Dish TV with Sirius radio and a DVD/VHS player. There is a twin over queen bunk bed in the second bedroom (top bed has a 150 pound weight limit). The kitchen is fully stocked (no dishwasher) to accommodate up to six people. For the first morning enjoy complimentary gourmet coffee or tea by the wood stove or the pond. Have a BBQ or just relax on the large wrap around deck, surrounded by large Douglas Fir, Cedar, Madrone, wild Rhododendrons, Azaleas and Iris. The grounds are in an all-natural setting on ¾ of an acre, with easy access, just off Hwy 199 in Gasquet. The property is completely fenced for your privacy. The Cabin is in a remote area so cell phone reception is variable depending on your service provider and phone. There is a land-line available.

There are many times when it's foggy at the coast but it's sunny at The Cabin! It's just a 10 minute walk or 2 minute drive to the pristine Smith River. It’s the largest free-flowing (no dams) river in the state, producing the largest Steelhead and Chinook salmon.

Dogs considered, please tell me how many, how old and how large/small. No cats please.

From The Cabin it’s just 11 miles on scenic Hwy 199 to Redwood National Park and Jedidiah Smith Redwood State Park. Some of the tallest trees in the world reside here and there are many trails to explore. Drive or bike through Redwood National Park on unpaved Howland Hill Rd. There are massive Redwood trees!

Like the ocean? We’re only 22 miles away as you drive through the Redwoods and Crescent City. In Crescent City there is Battery Point Lighthouse. In fact, there are many lighthouses along the coast. There is a great view from these lighthouses to do some whale watching. Gray whales migrate from December through May. You may also see Orcas and Humpback whales. Northern California and Oregon have some of the most beautiful coastlines. Yet, on those foggy coastal days, Gasquet is usually in the sunshine.

Great Fishing -- Along with Steelhead and Chinook, the Smith also has runs of Silver salmon, Coho and sea-run cutthroat trout. The Chinook runs start in late August, going through late December, with its peak in November. Steelhead starts their runs in early December and goes through March, with their peak in January. The Smith River flows through some of the most beautiful scenery in California. From Six Rivers National Forest through Jedediah State Park, people say that it’s hard to decide which is better, the scenery or the fishing.

About Diane Moller

I grew up in New York, Diane grew up in L.A. We both moved to the general area because we both love the mountains, the ocean and the many rivers that run through here. When we decided to get married we had to get more property for Diane's horses. So I had to leave this beautiful property...but now we get to visit it!

Diane Moller purchased this cabin in 1995

Why Diane Moller chose North Coast

I was renting a place in Crescent City but I wanted to own my own house. Even though I worked in Crescent City it was too expensive to buy there. So I checked out other possibilities and came across The Cabin. After buying it and living here, I realized what a gem I had. I can take my Jeep on the many logging roads and get the views of the snow covered mountains and the ocean. I can walk to the Smith River. Then there's the massive Redwoods just minutes away and of course the coast. And when Crescent City is fogged in The Cabin is usually in the sunshine!

What makes this cabin unique

I drove to Crescent City to work 5 days a week and when it was foggy at the coast, I would just drive into the sunshine when I came to Gasquet. Then I could relax on the large deck in the woods overlooking the little rejuvenating!

Trip Cs....Cozy, cute, and charming!

  • 5 of 5

Owner is very communicative and gave detailed instructions. We were a group of young professionals from the SF Bay Area. When we first drove in, we were impressed with the private lot, deck and the surroundings. The cabin is VERY well-maintained. It looked fairly new or recently renovated. The first thing we did was try out the wood-stove (with free wood!) The layout of the cabin is perfect for cooking and entertaining. The kitchen is FULLY stocked with seasonings/pots/pans/dishes. There are even movies and cds in the TV cabinet. Nothing like coming back after a long-hike in the Redwoods to a wood-stove and wine!! (we brought the wine)

We all wished we had planned an extra night. Wish it was closer than 7hrs away so we can visit often. It's such a fantastic value. Great for families and people seeking an escape from technology!

Peaceful Redwoods Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at the cabin a little late in the day but all was well-lit including a flashlight by the entry keypad making access a breeze. The cabin is cozy and well equipped and well marked for easy finding and use of items. They allow pets and although we didn't bring one there was not a speck of dog hair on any of our clothing. So while everything isn't new in the cabin, it is clean! I noticed they even had doggie items in the garage, spare rain jackets and many other misc. items that went above and beyond what would be expected.The garage was a blessing for keeping expensive gear in the vehicle instead of having to transport to cabin each night.

The cabin is snuggled in the trees and secluded from the neighbors and is a nice distance between Crescent City and Brookings. We stayed 5 nights and sleep was magical! So dark, quiet and peaceful. The wood stove created ambiance and warmth and there were space heaters in each room which worked well. The owners provide plenty of firewood, starter, lighters, -the works to have a great stove-fire experience.

The kitchen was loaded with useful items and although there is no dishwasher, that wasn't an issue for us. They also have an excellent large, working grill on the patio. The only caveat for us was that there was no table indoors. Only a long bar with (3) bar stools. There is a nice table and chairs on the patio and in warmer weather it's probably perfect for enjoying meals outside extending the cabin space. We had asked a couple to join us for 2 nights but after arriving at the cabin chose to meet them at a later time and location feeling the cabin was a little too cozy for 4 adults. In my opinion it is best suited for 2 adults and 2 kids as opposed to 4 adults although in the right situation it will work.

As promised there is indeed no internet connection -perfect for vacation!!!

It's a great cozy winter retreat and we'd like to return in the spring or fall when access to the outdoor patio would be more feasible.

Exceptional value with caring and responsive owners.

An "elegant"cabin in a wondrous location

  • 5 of 5

It is so cozy and comfortable, nice beds, kitchen much more well-equipped than my own, the dog was in heaven having the run of a large beautiful yard that was fenced. The list of lovely things goes on and on. I hope to be able to visit again in the summer. Thank you, Diane, for being so accommodating, generous and easy to "talk" to. What a pleasure! (ps - my son says that folks who have the taste, class and appreciation of the genre to hang Star Trek posters in the garage are his kind of people!)

Wonderful, spacious and charming.

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was everything we hoped for and more. More spacious than we realized with plenty of comfortable furniture. Kitchen had everything we needed to cook our meals. Heaters in every room so we could dial the temperature to our comfort level. Location was excellent - right in the redwoods. As a bonus tons of movies in the entertainment center. We will definitely be back.

Surrounded by beauty

  • 5 of 5

The layout of the cabin is really nice and makes juggling different sleeping schedules easy. We stayed for the weekend of Christmas so the wood stove was a real joy - with plenty of wood easily accessible. The cabin is well stocked and the owners allowed our dog which made the family outing complete. There was plenty of information about local activities and the layout of the backyard makes spending time at the property very enjoyable. The owner advertised that there was no wi-fi, however, we were still able to send and receive text messages and there was enough internet to check Facebook periodically so my daughters were content. In addition, the owner provides a calling card and land line for long distance needs. I would highly recommend this cabin to families wanting to breath in fresh air and enjoy the river and nearby coast lines.

What can I say?! Amazing!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, sister-in-law and her boyfriend stayed 2 nights in this beautiful property!! We loved everything about it! It's well taken care of, kitchen, rooms, bathrooms very stocked! Only thing is that is was very cold and it took a couple of minutes for the entire place to warm up! Besides that, we have no complaints at all!! Huge garage, beautiful view, and we were so happy to have warm water :)

We will definitely be back for a summer!

Thank you so much Diane!

Owner's Response: You are very welcome! So good to hear that you had a nice stay!! Yes, this time of year it can be cold upon your arrival. Sorry for that but since there is no thermostat on the heater we cannot leave it on all the time. Luckily it does warm up fast with all the heaters and wood stove! I hope you come back in the summer, there are some great swim holes in the Smith River! Different seasons, different experiences :). Have a great day!

National Scenic Hwy 199 follows the Smith River. There are many pull-offs along the Hwy where you can park and take the trails that go down to the river. The Smith River offers swimming, fishing, rafting or kayaking. The best part is, since there are so many places, is that you can find a place to have all to yourself!

There's a nice auto tour route through Redwood National Park on Howland Hill Rd. We enjoy this road most in the winter when there's less people and all the trees are fresh and clean from the rain. If you like hiking, the trails are marked and well groomed. One of our favorite hikes is the Boy Scout Tree trail. It's 5.8 miles round trip through the redwoods to get to the impressive 2,000 year old Boy Scout Tree. You can also bike along this road, it's quite spectacular! Next stop if your headed towards Crescent City is the Elk Valley Casino.

If you like hiking, the Pacific Coast Trail is also spectacular! Our favorite beaches are between Harris Beach and Whaleshead in Oregon. Many of the sunsets are worth waiting for.
